A backup source of heating for the winter

The freezing weather caught myself and others with my pants down, so to speak. Normally all of us have plenty of advanced warning, as well as the cooler temps gradually transfer in on us. This year Wintertide came early, as well as hit us hard with an ice storm right off the bat! This is not a unbelievable sign for the severity of this season, so I am hustling to get my house in order for the intense weather all of us will endure. Since I have a family, my concerns are compounded, because I need to make sure everyone is warm as well as cozy for the next few months, however of course I have a central Heating, Ventilation & A/C plan to take care of all our heating needs, that should go separate from saying. I normally have an annual checkup of the heating system, to make sure it is strong enough for the brutal winter, however appreciate I said it snuck up on myself and others this year! I had to go on the waitlist for an Heating, Ventilation & A/C service call, because so many people had the same plan as me. In the meantime, I am splitting some wood to have as a backup, because the old wrought iron fireplace in my residing room is certainly a wood burning heating system. A hundred years ago, this heating system would supply the only heating available at the time, so it was built strong. It is a big hassle compared to just touching the control device for instant heat, however in weather appreciate this my family needs a reliable backup. Let’s hope all of us don’t need to use the old heating system, however all of us will be prepared either way.
